Here's a sampling of some worldwide issued choice vinyl from these two fantastic bands. While The Pretty Things and Small Faces do not get the type of widespread accolades bestowed upon fellow British acts such as The Stones and the Who receive, their music is every bit as seminal, vital, and timeless.
THE PRETTY THINGS:
UK EP, 1964. Combines the Pretties' first two single releases.
US debut LP, 1964.
US singles, 1964
Canadian issue of the Pretty Things outstanding second LP. The cover is printed on textured, blotter-type paper that is seen on many Canadian LP's of the mid-60's.
US single, 1965
Australian single, 1965
UK, 1965. My favorite Pretty Things' single, and perhaps the greatest MOD anthem ever recorded.
SCARCE US single, 1967
Masterpiece 1968 LP; perhaps the greatest of all concept albums. Original German press.
THE SMALL FACES:
Debut UK single, 1965
UK pressing, debut LP 1966.
Curiously, this track from the '66 debut was released as a US single in 1973, pulled off of a compilation album. Quite scarce!
Somewhat confusingly, the Small Faces 2nd long player was also self-titled, and was issued with an altered track listing in the US (see below) as "There Are But Four Small Faces". This is an original German pressing of this fantastic LP.
USA, 1967 with the seldom seen (American) Immediate company sleeve.
France, 1968. Love the red Immediate label!
Sweden, 1969. The version of "Wham Bam Thank You Man" is an alternate here, and in my opinion the superior version as it is faster and punchier. Also, I love the ad for Marshall amps on the back of the sleeve, especially considering that (more than likely) Steve Marriott is cranked through a Marshall on the record itself!
